Traditional physical server chargeback models do not work in today's dynamic virtual server environments. VKernel Chargeback, a unique and patent-pending solution, delivers an affordable and simple-to-use tool that gives users immediate cost visibility of their VMware ESX data center ? "who is using what resources and how much it costs." VKernel Chargeback continually measures and meters actual shared resource consumption (CPU, memory, storage, network) of each virtual machine (VM) and allows you to apply additional fixed costs (hardware, software, infrastructure) to fairly charge departments only for the virtual server resources being used. With accurate Chargeback reports, you can effectively recover IT costs and justify financial decisions of future purchases.
